For Day 3, I’m moving away from the political theme of my first two posts for this challenge. Instead, I’m going to quote Groucho Marx, one of the most brilliant comedic minds of the 20th century, if not of all time.
Marx was the master of the wise crack. His genius was his ability to twist grammar and capitalize on the double entendre of the English language. As a listener, you had to pay attention or you might miss one of his throw-away lines. You never saw it coming.
Since it is Day 3, I’ve selected three of my favorite quips from Groucho, all of which typify his wit.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”
“One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I’ll never know.”
“Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?”
I hope you enjoyed these three quotes from Groucho. I know that they crack me up every time I hear them.
